The caption under the uniform photo dubbed "retro" said: "Also #fashion is an aspect. To this day there are military-style elements in haute couture".

Germany's armed forces, the Bundeswehr, have apologised on Wednesday after it posted a picture of a Wehrmacht uniform on its Instagram stories. The word "retro" was put on the photo.

"We are very sorry. The uniform is an item on exhibition in our military history museum in Dresden. But we did not correctly label the image historically and gave it a wrong and unsuitable caption", the Bundeswehr said in a statement.

Initially, the military described the Nazi uniform on the post as "military-style elements in haute couture".
